Horseman’s Sunday 2023
17th April 2023
On Sunday 16 April, Horseman’s Sunday returned to the Church of St Martha on the Hill for a community celebration of horse riding in the Surrey Hills. Horseman’s Sunday is embedded in rich history, the first event occurring at Hyde Park in 1967. As horse riders enjoyed their hack up to the top of the hill, they could drink in the stunning views and were greeted by the fantastic group of volunteers stewarding the event.
The riders were lined up along the church walls, and partook in an optional blessing by the Vicar. Surrey Hills Society provided the riders and spectators with information on the area and leaflets to take away to enjoy more of the countryside.
A huge thank you to the riders and spectators for their generous donations to the Church and Surrey Hills Society, as well as the efforts from the volunteers to make the day so special.
